Happy Thanksgiving, Kensingtonians. Watch out for that tryptophan.

Restaurant Wars

Over the next couple of weeks, we're going to try to get definitive answers to some of the most important questions in all of our lives: Where can we get something to eat around here?

And, so, Restaurant Wars. We all have favorites, so check the top right-hand portion of the page each week for a chance to make your voice heard. We'll start off with Thai Food, something that is widely available in Kensington.

New Management

Hey everyone.

As you might have heard, the Kensington (Brooklyn) blog has changed hands. Some of you may know us from the Kensington Facebook Group we started last year, and now we've been given the chance to mind the store here at the blog for a while. The new address for submissions, requests, and queries is

A blog like this can't work without contributions from the readers. No tidbit is too small. If you know of something taking place in the neighborhood, it is your duty as a citizen or near-citizen to inform us. If you see someone spray-painting 'Vegeta" on the side of Gyro King, you should take a picture and send it to us BEFORE calling the cops. If you're having people over for fondue, contact us immediately, although I think we're busy that night.

One of the best parts of this blog is the very active and colorful comments section under each post. We have no plans to change this. Please continue posting frequently and under multiple names to give the illusion of strength in numbers. You're free to say anything you want as long as it's not about cheap v1agra.

In short, the only thing that is changing here is the volume, content, and tone of posts, plus a complete aesthetic overhaul.

I think we all owe a thanks to the previous operator, Jen, for all the hard work she put into keeping this blog going for almost two years now. We hope she'll continue to contribute content in one form or another in the months and years to come.

As many people have noticed the blog posts have become few and far between. There has been a ton happening in the 'hood with no coverage here... Kensington coffee wars, recent events (Hamilton Dog House Halloween party), Church Ave lot has been cleaned up!, etc. etc.

Here's the deal - we got a new job and are working A LOT. There is very little time for much beyond work so we think its time to officially take a step back and wondered... IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE WHO WANTS TO TAKE OVER Kensington Blog? If so, we'd be more than happy to link to you here and/or give up the blogspot address. Just email to discuss
